**Guest post from Ellen B.**
At BlogPaws 2010, a conference for pet bloggers, a challenge was proposed that I knew Drs. Foster and Smith would want to participate in…
In a session called “Be the Change,” some creative pet bloggers shared their experiences of how they raised money to help animal shelters and rescue organizations. Then, they presented a challenge for everyone in the room…and of course to all people who are passionate about pets: develop your own way to help our animal friends. One lucky person in the crowd got to pick the shelter of their choice who would be the recipient of the challenge. The shelter chosen was Pets Without Parents in Columbus, OH.
Here’s what we are going to do: a comment-athon. We will make a donation for every blog comment! Starting at 12:01am on Friday, 4/16/2010, leave a comment on any post in this Drs. Foster and Smith Pet Blog. Each person may leave up to 3 comments on different posts.
- Share a little story about your pet
- Share an experience you’ve had with your pet relating to the post
- Ask a question – or answer a question posed in a previous comment
- Add a bit of your wisdom to any post
For every blog comment (up to 3 comments per person per day), Drs. Foster & Smith happily agree to donate $1 in a Drs. Foster & Smith pet supplies gift certificate to Pets Without Parents, up to a maximum of $250.
But wait, there’s more! One of the people who leave a comment on our blog during PAWticipate For Pets will ALSO get to choose a shelter/rescue of their choice to receive an additional Drs. Foster & Smith gift certificate in the same amount that is raised for Pets Without Parents! The lucky person will be selected at random and announced on Monday, April 19, 2010.
